. incense we are here at brown university where i teach in your students and my colleagues, one thing that i felt particularly interesting and quite dramatic and shocking is the importance of brown university. and the tiny state in the nation punching above its weight significantly in the round of illicit trade from the very beginning. in the great irony that actress in the book is that a country that grows through smuggling, in fact, was given birth through smuggling yesterday the world's leading policing superpower, the most aggressive, enthusiastic, anti smuggling crusader, if you will, so it is quiet transformation. mark used the word hypocrisy. certainly there is hypocrisy. but not even sure the word hypocrisy appears in the text itself. amazon, you can go. um wondering if you punch in the word, does it come up? because i have not checked. so let me just tell you, my time , four stories. i cannot tell you the whole book. sixteen chapters and so one. but for stories. one of the stories was the relationship between the illicit trade and warfare. all of these stories, by the way kenaf co

educational history over the past 50 years or 60 years now has been the brown decision, this idea that if we could desegregate and if we could force the hand of schools and policymakers that we could have greater education and not just equality but equity. obviously your book pushes against that narrative somewhat. but the brown versus board is brought up in your book this entire time. talk about what brown has meant for educational equality and access in the country so far? >> guest: is a hard question because i think we hold up around as this amazing feat that we accomplished, that we roll back segregation and then we look at what happened afterwards and we see how incredibly difficult it was, divisive in some ways but i'll see you have incremental progress after that, that was very frustrating to people and so is seen as a great victory but i think also it's important doing this research to really look back and see what we didn't accomplish yet. and so when i was looking at desegregation and how it was finally implemented 20 years later after brown actually was handed down, we started

who witnessed this visitor from space in its final moments is ever likely to forget it. >> brown: scientists say the meteor weighed about ten tons. and in what's being seen as a cosmic coincidence, it came on the same day as an asteroid that came exceedingly close to earth, at least in space terms. as this nasa animation shows, the asteroid was just over 17,000 miles away from earth, traveling at about eight miles per second, actually inside a ring of television and weather satellites that surround the planet. named da-14, the asteroid was half the size of a football field. it passed, we can happily report, without incident. here to tell us about both events is astrophysicist and author neil degrasse tyson, director of the hayden planetarium in new york city. let's start with what happened in russia. how unusual was that in terms of size and impact? >> well, we couldn't know precisely how common that would be. all we can do is sort of look back at other sort of reported such events. for example, there was an air blast that happened in the airspace over india and pakistan back in

brown university, where teachers students and colleagues, one thing i found particularly interesting and quite traumatic and shocking is the importance of brown university in rhode island, the tiniest state in the nation in the realm of illicit trade in the very beginning. the great irony i trace in the book is that a country that corruptly smuggling, given birth recycling this today the world's leading policing superpower, the most aggressive enthusiastic anti-smuggling crusader at tivo. so it's quite a transformation. markey is the hypocrisy. it's not only not in the index. i'm not even sure the word hypocrisy appears in the text itself. amazon can get inside of the book. i haven't checked. but let me tell you in just a few minutes of my time for stories. they're 16 chapters and someone, but for stories. the relationship between illicit trade in warfare and all the stories, by the way, have contemporary relevance, lessons for today. there's much talk about the relationship between conflict commodities and war. for example, finance guerrillas in colombia or opium financed mujahedin

, shrink your pores and overall fade the brown spots on your skin-- you end up having a much more youthful and actually healthier skin. when i first saw nubrilliance, i was a little bit skeptical because it was a small device, and when i opened it up, it looked very simple. but then i was really impressed as soon as i turned it on, because of the level of the vacuum and also because of the ability to select diamond-tip abrasiveness. many of these other home devices and take-home kits are just a cream that polishes the skin or a spinning brush. to get the real effects, you have to have that vacuum along with the abrasive part of it. i'm very impressed by nubrilliance because of the combination of the vacuum and the abrasive diamond tip really makes it a true home microdermabrasion device. >> you can see why nubrilliance has helped so many people over the last several years as the first at-home professional-style microdermabrasion system, but there are still more of you out there who want youthful, healthy-looking skin.>> announcd to pay for professional microdermabrasion... >> it was kind o

overincarceration of black and brown people. it starts with stop and frisk. an activity that might be seen as a harmless activity, if engaged in by a white kid, if it's a black or brown kid, they're going to juvi. a white kid may be sent home, don't do that again. it starts this school-to-prison pipeline. it just starts a whole array of problems. so stop and frisk, i think, is really problematic. in los angeles, i believe there was a code called nhi. it meant no human involved. this was a police code which meant black and brown people. the work we've done on brain science and behavioral science seems to indicate that many people associate criminality with black people. and brown people. so having the stop and frisk as a way to deal with this i think is an overreaction and is a way that we might just cause more harm. >> very concerning. i want to come back to the brain science. we talk solutions in just a moment. i want to turn now to you, dr. briscoe-smith for more of the real world impact on this. i know you, as well, mina, have looked at this as a health issue. this is a health issue. isn't i
